Hello lovelies, and welcome to my last message on Colorpieces
It has been a long 6 year journey, but I’m at the end of the road now, and the site will close down in roughly 25 days from now.
There are 2 reasons for that:
- My website host has been upping the prices for the past many years, and this year’s bill takes the cake for me. I’ve been with them for close to 20 years, but with each forced update from them, I’ve become less and less loyal. 50GB is now their smallest package, and I use 1,3GB, so they are not worth my money anymore.
- I could grab my stuff and domain to move to a cheaper host, but I feel like Colorpieces has given me what it can already, and I’ve not really done much with it lately, not even updated my New Years’ resolutions or written about Crafty February.
So, what will happen now? Nothing at all. I recommend downloading my resources if you want them; because I’m probably not gonna reupload them somewhere else. I’ll keep the Colorpieces name on Instagram, and make a post there now and then when I’ve crafted something, but that’s probably about it. There will not be a website to replace this one, as I don’t have a clear direction to go in. I’ll preserve what’s most important to me, which is mainly my free resource lists and FFXIV Hunt EXP lists, which I will probably post on Reddit for everyone to enjoy.
I’ll not vanish from the website and design scene forever though, since I’ve already been working on something else for a few weeks. My new route will be more local, where I will offer my video editing skills, logo designs, website creations and business card designs on a hobby basis to small businesses, organizations and private people alike. I’ve already been dabbling in a few jobs to try and make a name for myself. I’ll also keep crafting and visiting the local craft fairs, and I also bought an iPad recently, so I can draw some more. Writing hasn’t been going so well for me this year as I’d have wished, but I’ll catch up with that as well.
Sadly, that’s all I have to say. It breaks my heart to end this so abruptly, but maybe it was already a long time coming, and this was just the last straw.
Wishing you all out there the best in the future; Sakiel / Eva
